If you want to take part in the Shopify build a business competition then you had better get your entrepreneurial skates on because there are only 5 weeks left for you to register and create your online storeShopify Build a Business Competition

The Build a Business Competition

Shopify is an e-commerce platform which every year holds a Build-a-Business competition in which it challenges enterprising self starters to create an e-store and compete for sales over a 2 month period - this year during April and May 2015.

All entrants will have their sales monitored and the 5 top sellers within the 2 month window will receive a phenomenal prize - the opportunity to fly via private jet to Richard Branson’s Necker Island for a 5 day adventure - filled with exploration, mentorship and of course professional growth.

Apart from Sir Richard Branson, other mentors this year include Tim Ferriss, Daymond John, Marie Forleo and Seth Godin. A pretty impressive bunch then!

What you should do next

As we mentioned, you have only got until the 31st March to get your e-store up and running so we advise getting started as soon as possible. 

First of all, identify what product(s) you’d like to sell, open a Shopify store and then select a relevant category. The categories in question are Fashion & Apparel, Electronics & Gadgets, Art, Jewellery & Crafts and our personal fave “Everything Else”. Yep - they have all bases covered!

To keep things simple, you can get straight down to business HERE.

The next bit is what really matters. Selling!

And just in case you need a little extra encouragement, take a look at the video below, which is sure to convince you!
